6.5/10 Aladdin (2019) Bill Watters Will Smith holds up better than might have been expected following in Robin Williams shoes. You know a film has an uphill battle when that comparison is the first of many going into a film. EDIT

6/10 Brightburn (2019) Bill Watters What there is, is fine, maybe even good, however like Belko Experiment, it feels like there could have been more depth to the overall experience. And that's a good thing, when you liked it, but wanted more. EDIT

Posted May 24, 2019
The Edge of Seventeen (2016) Kaitlyn Booth The Edge of Seventeen is the rare coming of age comedy that immediately took me in with its smart writing and relatable characters. EDIT
Posted May 24, 2019
Manchester by the Sea (2016) Kaitlyn Booth Manchester by the Sea is pretentious but fantastic performances and a realistic depiction of what grief really looks like elevates this above the normal Oscar bait. EDIT
Posted May 24, 2019

Posted May 24, 2019
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) Kaitlyn Booth Rogue One is a movie that had the odds set against it but came out shining in the end. EDIT
Posted May 24, 2019

Posted May 24, 2019
Assassin's Creed (2016) Kaitlyn Booth Assassin's Creed is a train-wreck that commits the cardinal sin of being boring on top of making no sense. EDIT
Posted May 24, 2019
Sing (2016) Kaitlyn Booth Sing might be passable in a lesser year of animation but the fundamental flaws in the film kneecap it from the beginning. EDIT
Posted May 24, 2019
Jackie (2016) Kaitlyn Booth Jackie has an award worthy performance from Natalie Portman and a truly haunting score but it's a series of well done events that doesn't form a cohesive whole. EDIT
Posted May 24, 2019
Fences (2016) Kaitlyn Booth Fences has sharp dialogue and excellent performances but it's shot like a play not a movie. EDIT
Posted May 24, 2019

Posted May 24, 2019

Posted May 24, 2019
3/10 Patriots Day (2016) Kaitlyn Booth Patriots Day takes one of the biggest modern tragedies and plays it up as an over the top pat on the back to a fictional character instead of real people. EDIT
Posted May 24, 2019
5/10 Silence (2016) Kaitlyn Booth There doesn't appear to be much of a target audience and everything is too held back and solemn to really connect on an level. EDIT
Posted May 24, 2019
4/10 xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017) Kaitlyn Booth xXx: Return of Xander Cage commits the cardinal sin of a bad action movie; it's boring. EDIT
Posted May 24, 2019

Posted May 24, 2019

Posted May 24, 2019
8.5/10 Unrest (2017) Kaitlyn Booth Unrest takes a very frank look at the often misunderstood illness known as 'chronic fatigue syndrome' that is both informative and hard to watch. EDIT
Posted May 24, 2019
6.5/10 The Hero (2017) Kaitlyn Booth The pacing problem becomes more apparent, and the story falls flat with so many people putting so much into it. EDIT
Posted May 24, 2019
7/10 Before I Fall (2017) Kaitlyn Booth Before I Fall doesn't bring anything new to the genre, but for the teenagers who are going to see it, the message is clear, and a good one. EDIT
Posted May 24, 2019
8/10 Deidra & Laney Rob a Train (2017) Kaitlyn Booth It's a little predictable, but the interplay among all of the characters is good enough that you're able to excuse it. EDIT
Posted May 24, 2019
3.5/10 Manifesto (2015) Kaitlyn Booth It's two hours you will never get back no matter how "arty" the movie thinks it is. EDIT
Posted May 24, 2019
9.5/10 John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) Kaitlyn Booth John Wick: Chapter 2 takes the slick, no nonsense action of the original and builds upon the world it inhabits while delivering top notch action scenes. EDIT
Posted May 23, 2019
9.5/10 The LEGO Batman Movie (2017) Kaitlyn Booth The LEGO Batman Movie seems like an easy cash-in on the success of The LEGO Movie but a true love for the source material and a sharp sense of humor has made this one of the best animated movies of the year. EDIT
Posted May 23, 2019
.5/10 Fifty Shades Darker (2017) Kaitlyn Booth Fifty Shades Darker is another boring entry into a series that is somehow shaping up to be even worse than the source material it is based on. EDIT
Posted May 22, 2019
3.5/10 The Great Wall (2016) Kaitlyn Booth The story and characters are threadbare, the action scenes vary between pretty and unbelievable and the tone is all over the map. EDIT
Posted May 22, 2019
9.5/10 Logan (2017) Kaitlyn Booth Logan is a bloody good time and gives fans and audiences alike the Wolverine movie we've been craving since 1999. EDIT
Posted May 22, 2019

Posted May 22, 2019
7.5/10 Beauty and the Beast (2017) Kaitlyn Booth Beauty and the Beast is a faithful retelling of a near perfect movie but anything new it tries to bring to the table is purely superficial. EDIT
Posted May 22, 2019
3.5/10 Ghost in the Shell (2017) Kaitlyn Booth Ghost in the Shell might look like the source material come to life but misses all of the things that made the original so compelling. EDIT
Posted May 22, 2019
7/10 Colossal (2016) Kaitlyn Booth Colossal has a weird concept that might be hard for some but once the movie settles into itself it's quite funny and thought provoking. EDIT
Posted May 22, 2019
8.5/10 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) Kaitlyn Booth Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 might be a little long but the overall themes of found families and the humor remain as strong as ever. EDIT
Posted May 22, 2019
7.5/10 Alien: Covenant (2017) Kaitlyn Booth Alien: Covenant is better than Prometheus and has plenty of gore and blood to go around, but it doesn't live up to the iconic Alien - no matter how much it tries. EDIT
Posted May 22, 2019
3.5/10 Snatched (2017) Kaitlyn Booth Snatched might feature a great comedy duo in Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn, but the jokes rely too much on being gross rather than being clever. EDIT
Posted May 22, 2019
5.5/10 King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017) Kaitlyn Booth King Arthur: Legend of the Sword seems to jump from high fantasy insanity to gritty reboot and can't find a consistent tone. EDIT
Posted May 22, 2019
3/10 Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (2017) Kaitlyn Booth Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul is a road trip movie that trips over every terrible family movie cliche with pacing so bad it made 91 minutes feel like a lifetime. EDIT
Posted May 22, 2019
4/10 Everything, Everything (2017) Kaitlyn Booth Everything, Everything uses superficial emotional cues to make you think you're watching something deep or profound when it's really quite shallow. EDIT
Posted May 22, 2019
2.5/10 Baywatch (2017) Kaitlyn Booth Baywatch might earn its r-rating but doesn't do anything fun with it aside from the same boring crude jokes. EDIT
Posted May 21, 2019
4/10 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) Kaitlyn Booth Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is another cynical and predictable entry into a series in desperate need of new direction. EDIT
Posted May 21, 2019
8/10 The Lost Arcade (2015) Kaitlyn Booth The Lost Arcade is an interesting little documentary for fans of not only the history of New York City but also the evolution of gaming culture as a whole. EDIT
Posted May 21, 2019
4.5/10 The Mummy (2017) Kaitlyn Booth The Mummy wants to be a horror movie, an action movie, and kick off an entire universe at the time same - and accomplishes none of those things. EDIT
Posted May 21, 2019
5.5/10 Cars 3 (2017) Kaitlyn Booth It has a great ending with a killer message but the entire thing doesn't quite fit together. There are problems that can't be overlooked. EDIT
Posted May 21, 2019
3.5/10 In the Deep (2017) Kaitlyn Booth 47 Meters Down wants to be another awesome shark movie for the summer but dumb characters and a lack of sharks means this one has jump scares and nothing more. EDIT
Posted May 21, 2019
3/10 The Book of Henry (2017) Kaitlyn Booth The Book of Henry might have some interesting ideas but the tonal shifts are so frequent and jarring that you're left wondering what kind of movie this is and who it was made for. EDIT
